5 steps to choose a wedding planner
1) Think about the type of wedding planning you want
Do you want to outsource everything or do you just need help with some aspects, like styling or coordinating your wedding? Think about what you expect from your wedding planner beforehand and then look for a wedding planner who can meet your expectations.
2) Look at the portfolio of your wedding planner
Take a good look at the website and the photos the wedding planner has placed on it beforehand. The photos can already give you a good idea of the wedding planner's style. Does the style fit the picture you have in mind? Then go for it!
3) Think about budget
The budget is of course an important element. How much are you prepared to spend on a wedding planner? Outsourcing your entire wedding to a wedding planner will at least teach you to estimate all the costs in advance. But remember also that most wedding planners have a wide range of knowledge and contacts. They provide the best value for money.
4) Go for one or more introductory talks
Before making a decision, it is best to plan an introductory meeting. The added value of such a meeting is that you learn to formulate your expectations very clearly and can already make concrete agreements. In addition, you will immediately sense the wedding planner's style and notice whether there is a click. Because a good collaboration requires a good feeling and clear communication.
5) Make your decision
Is your favourite wedding planner available on your favourite day and have you felt the click? Then don't hesitate, book your wedding planner right after the introductory meeting and start working on your first plans with peace of mind. Good luck!
